Is finally coming out. The duo announced that the album The H drops May 23rd. That joint was supposed to hit back in 2008, but for some reason it never did. I wonder if anyone still cares?

Alright Moguls…. Tis the Season…. ain’t that how the song go? Well to get you into that Holiday Spirit here is a classic Disney commercial from the 70′s or 80′s. Not sure exactly when, because that was many moons ago. But what I am sure of is that once I saw this commercial I knew Santa was on his way.
Yes Bill Cosby was always cool. Most of us may simply remember him for his sweaters, pudding pops, and dance moves. But the man was cool before he was the Brown Hornet. This track epitomizes his coolness. Bill Cosby Presents Badfoot Brown & The Bunions Bradford Funeral & Marching Band was an instrumental jazz album presented in the vain of Bitches Brew, Martin’s Funeral was one of the two tracks on the album.
This song starts off with a nice piano groove that eventually turns into a spaced out field trip before the band brings it back. Smoothness. This is the perfect way to start your week.

After a sold out concert in Las Vegas, Kendrick Lamar invited TheWellVersed and 2DopeBoyz to a late night studio session on the eve of good kid, m.A.A.d city getting unleashed to the masses. In an exclusive clip of our sit down with the artist formally known as K.Dot, the Compton emcee discussed the early pressure of his debut album already being compared to Nas’ quintessential hip hop classic Illmatic.
“Illmatic? For people to even put my album in the light of that, is an accomplishment. It’s crazy to even be mentioned with it but it’s scary at the same time,” Lamar says about some reviews suggesting that his Aftermath album is the most important debut since the Queensbridge emcee dropped his album nearly two decades ago.
Lamar also discusses the clip that circulated the web of Andre 3000 sitting in the studio listening to “Bitch Don’t Kill My Vibe” and reveals what happens when the cameras went off.
“He stood on the couch, put his hand up and said ‘This is golden,’” Lamar says before explaining that 3 Stacks was one of the first individuals to hear the album in its entirety. When asked whether we could see a Kendrick Lamar and Andre Benjamin collaboration in the near future, the TDE rapper paused for a moment before a huge grind stretched across his face as he simply stated “Maybe.”
Stay tuned for the entire interview coming soon.
